      Yeah it would be hard to get excited.  But I guarantee u once you see your bank account(s) after transfers have been made you're gonna scream and jump and say "YES!"  =)  I know I would.  As long as I can go on my online shopping sprees and travel the world staying in luxurious hotels and still have $$$ left over i'll be ok.  But I still won't be able to be friends with Paris Hilton =(

        I think it's just normal. If the lottery sells hope and they run out what are you left with?

        It also doesn't help if therr aren't any big games in your area to fall back on. In WA there isn't even anything you could retire on. I'd say 2.6 million  would be enough for me to retire on after tax. But games here never approach that exept for Mega.

          I wonder if some actually become depressed after a jackpot win later on? Not for poor financial management, but because they beat such great odds finally, and now the challenge is gone. So now what? Sure if you have that kind of mentality something is seriously wrong with you, but I bet it has happened to those already used to being spoiled. I wonder if they continue to play to try again?

          But yea it is kind of humorous to see the site say $12 million! after the $300 million dollar win. Just goes to show you how much $300 million is when people are depressed over $12 million.
